Health Care Reform

So, I'm all about people having their own opinions. That's what our country is based on, right? RIGHT? But why are we so angry towards each other right now just because SOME PEOPLE want to HELP the citizens of this country who RIGHTFULLY DESERVE health care? Why is that health insurance is only supposed to be for the rich and healthy? NOT OK.

I pay for my own health insurance right now, and it fucking sucks. I have a very high copay, and I am not allowed to get certain medication unless I pay for it out of pocket. So if there is no generic, I AM FUCKED. Yes, I complain about that, but I am so fortunate to be the small percentage of this country that CAN pay for their own health care. What I don't understand is why people are so upset about the government asking them to help their fellow citizens and step it up a little bit. So I have to pay higher taxes. At least then families in the SAME city I live in, or even a city 3 thousand miles away will be able to take their children to the doctor when they get the flu. At least then we won't have people dying unfairly because SOMEONE WANTS TO GO ON A TRIP TO DUBAI for their birthday and doesn't care about their fellow human beings.

I know that if this passes in the Senate, then it will be an uphill battle. It has been for a long time! But like they said, it was a struggle to pass Social Security, and look where we are now. Still fighting to save OUR money so that we have it when we retire. This bill is not perfect. Not at all. It is a step in the right direction, and I am so grateful to have people on this planet that actually care. Who cares if you are Democrat, Republican, Liberal or Conservative. We are HUMAN BEINGS and we all matter. Not one person is better than the other that he deserves health care and she doesn't.

So to all those people who oppose, I say fuck off. When Blue Shield dumps you because you get stage 4 cancer and you want help but can't get it, all you have is yourself to blame.
